Have you ever taken your kid to the store, pretended not to "look" while they picked out your gift AND while you stood in line and paid for it, then went home and wrapped it yourself?! I know I have, but there is no need for that anymore!
Back for its 3rd year, the Big Brothers Big Sisters holiday gift store for kids, From Me To You, opens December 5th! The concept is simple: parents sit, relax, watch Christmas movies and drink hot cocoa while their kids shop, assisted by helper elves, in the store where the gifts are displayed on shelves. Parents make a donation which the kids use to select gifts for mom, dad, grandparents, siblings and friends. They leave the store with a backpack full of under the tree ready wrapped gifts. All proceeds benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters, a proven youth mentoring organization that provides role models for kids facing adversity.
the Grand Opening!
is Saturday, December 5 from 1:00 - 5:00 pm
at 202 Baltimore Ave. | Near the intersection of McCullough & N. St. Mary'
Store hours will be after school and weekends through Dec. 20.
Call 210-225-6322 for more details.
